The Persians used sabre-like swords called Shamshir.
Our Persian Shamshir has a slender, single-edged blade with a long fuller. It is parallel for around half of it length, when it begins to taper to a point and curve at the same time. These edged weapons were designed to be used by mounted warriors. With a Shamshir, you can apply cutting and thrusting techniques with equal effect. The wooden grip is decorated with metal riveting and curved like a pistol grip. The crossguard is shaped like an elongated cross and is indeed decorated with the Persian cross fleury. The langet provides extra support for the hilt and blade. This crossguard shape is characteristic of all scimitar-type swords. A scabbard is included.
